Hi I'm Tom Lamb

I'm a Mormon. I have been a member of the Church since I was 13. I love the Savior and know that this is His true church.

About Me

I grew up in North Carolina and joined the Church when I was 13. I served in the military 20 years and worked in state government until April 2011. I am currently retired. I have 5 children, and 8 grandchildren.

Why I am a Mormon

I'm Mormon because I know that The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the Lord's true church. I know this because I prayerfully read the Book of Mormon and followed the promise given in the Book of Moroni, chapter 10, and verses 3-5. I received a testimony once I read, pondered, and prayed about it. I know that Joseph Smith was a prophet of God, and that through him, the Lord restored His Church. Not a new protestant church, but the same church established by Christ himself in New Testament times. I know that there is a prophet on the earth today. I know that this experience is not unique to me. Anyone who truly wants to gain this testimony for him or herself can, if they read, ponder, and pray with a true desire to know the truth.

How I live my faith

I live my faith by reading the scriptures by myself and with my family, praying, and attending Church regularly. I serve others by visiting with other church members, assisting the Bishop of our congregation in performing his duties, and working with the youth in our congregation. I try my very best to live the commandments, learn my duty to God and my fellowman, and serve others as occasion permits.

What is a “testimony” that Mormons speak of?

Tom Lamb
A testimony is a personal revelation from the Holy Ghost that the Book of Mormon is true the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints is the Lord's true church Jospeh Smith was a prophet of God and there are living prophets and apostles on earth today. Show more Show less
